we have a couple of 3Com SuperStack 3 switches that all of the hosts in our network are plugged into.
I just went onto the web interface today and there seems to be a lot of warnings and critical events there concerning the ports of the switch.
It will go from port to port of the switch and if there is something plugged into the port that is transfering a file or RIS image, etc., it will say that there has been a communication problem. If you click on 'retry' it will go through after that.
I've been playing around with the port speeds to try things like 10, 100, etc., instead of the auto, but nothing really seems to help.
Has anyone run into something like this, and if so, is there a way to cure this kind of problem?
